Romance can be hard to pull off when you’re completely broke. But sometimes it can actually spark creative ideas. This guy wasn’t that inventive, but hey, sometimes a nice short walk can be just as good as a fancy restaurant.
This, of course, only if you make sure not to elbow your partner in the face. If you did, maybe you should try and make it up to her, by actually taking her to a fancy dinner and keeping your elbows to yourself.
The Prom Proposal
High school proms are a breeding ground for both successful and unsuccessful romantic gestures. Teenagers are known for doing silly things in the name of romance, like proposing, publically, at 18. Public proposals can be cringy even if they go right, but if they go wrong, it means that everyone is there to see it.
Could you imagine the mortification of both the Reddit poster and the person they proposed to, as everyone was watching them, waiting for the answer?
Too Much Liquid Courage
Is there anything more romantic than saying I love you for the first time? It's a moment you don't want to mess up. Some people even go to the extent of planning a whole evening around the touching admission.
What could have been a beautiful moment turned out to be an awkward one that this guy will forever remember as a romantic fail.
Champagne? Check. Specially reserved spot? Check. Throw in the candles, the petals, the ambient lighting, and all the right elements were in place for the perfect proposal.
Having read the restaurant memo that it was a proposal, the waitress approached the couple and congratulated them on their engagement. Instead of a warm thanks, the waitress got a confused look from the girlfriend and a furious scowl from the boyfriend – he had not yet proposed!
A local dive bar did not expect to be entertaining a Valentine’s Day wedding proposal. Nonetheless, a hopeful fiancé asked the staff to help arrange a surprise proposal for his girlfriend and really did seem like everything will go according to plan.
The manager stored the ring in the safe. However, the bar owner came across it and, thinking that it was a lost and found item, decided that it would be great for his girlfriend! This is a pretty epic fail on the restaurant's side, but we at least hope the women agreed to marry this poor lad.
